Steven Weintraub, founder and principal of Art Preservation
Services, Inc. in New York City will present "When the Whole is
Greater than the Parts: a Holistic Approach to Preservation

Mr. Weintraub consults with museums throughout the country as an
environmental preservation specialist, and is involved in innovative
research on color perception and illumination of museum collections.
All too often, it appears that the twin goals of preservation and
exhibition are in conflict. Is this inevitable? Drawing from actual
examples encountered in museum and historic house settings, this
presentation will examine a number of environmental issues
associated with preservation and exhibition, and will provide
guidance on how to analyze and implement possible solutions.

The Topics in Preservation Science lectures are free and open to the
public. Upcoming presentations include:
